Research on Heuristics Logistics Distribution Algorithm Based on Parallel Multi-ant Colonies
Logistics distribution problem is an important part of the modern logistics system. Suppliers need to plan a route scheme for each customer in goods distribution, which is a multi-point to multi-point problem. It is NP-hard. Through analysis of characteristics of the existing logistics system, mathematical models are constructed, by introducing the order request and the return request with multiple suppliers. With these models, the authors present multi-vendor logistics distribution optimized algorithm and heuristic logistics distribution algorithm based on parallel multi-colonies.
